ok...so now your soles are made...place your dolls foot onto the sole, making sure it will work...i always make sure the shoe is a little bigger that the foot...i dont like chopping their feet off because the shoe is too small (which i have done...doesnt feel right!)
ok..so now..i take a paper towel and drap it over the sole, giving it plenty of room for the foot to go in, then i trace the upper shape , following the sole shape, but making it a little bigger, so that i have
I cut out those pieces, also
cutting the hole in the middle where the ankle will be. Then I clip very small cuts so that the fabric will lay nice and "mold" smoother. I start at the toe of the shoe with a dot of fabri tac or zap a gap, depending on what type of fabric i am using....and glue the "right" side of the edge of the fabric...then i follow around the first side....the second side will be trickier...this is where i use a "a long needle tool" (oh yeah i sell these $ 2.00!!! Hmmm...) anyway, to get inside of that shoe and press the edge NEATLY onto the sole. You can get fancier, using two pieces of seperate fabric for the upper...or make an easy slip on., Boots.....ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!
